Erin & Cameron, Cedar Falls Engagement

Had such a fun time taking photos of these two in Waverly the other day! And be still my dang heart – these two have the CUTEST PUP. Maddi joined us for a few minutes of photos and I could not have loved her more! <3 Just look at her little PAW!

Amanda & Estefan’s Des Moines Engagement Session

One of my favorite sessions at one of my favorite places (seriously though, will the Botanical Gardens ever get old!? Doubtful!) I LOVED the light during their session & how their photos turned out in general (and that they came excited and ready to play!) I absolutely cannot wait to photograph these two again in […]

Krista & Andrew’s Botanical Gardens Engagement Session

Kyle’s the kind of guy who serenades Matchbox 20 to Mary on his guitar, and Mary’s the kind of gal who offers to move him in with her when Kyle breaks his ankle (during a backflip?! WHO ARE THESE AMAZING HUMANS) so she could help him get back on his feet.

Jessica & Dan – Engagement Session

We had a KILLER sunset for this session – I obsessed over the bright pink cloud patterns the entire drive home! We ended up photographing Joyce & Brent’s engagement photos on family-owned land in Eddyville, IA (also where the wedding will be next year!).

Riley & Tyler | Engagement Session in Cedar Falls, IA

I absolutely love being a wedding photographer. One thing I love the most? Meeting couples for their engagement sessions. It gives us all the chance to get to know each other and get comfortable with being photographed before their big day!  These two will be married in less than two months! Mike & Amy were […]
